According to Quillblog, Bridge House Publishing has launched a benefit anthology called 100 Stories for Haiti, a glue-and-paper affair that “originated on Twitter and spans multiple continents.”

As it happens, I began rereading Kathy Acker’s Kathy Goes To Haiti (1990) last week, a novel comprised of almost three thousand tweets -- well before tweeting had entered the genresphere.

I love Kathy’s alternations, how easily she moves between indifference, incredulity and desire. I hope those interested in helping Haiti might purchase Kathy’s book as well.
